The BMW i3 coupe being a two door electric car doesn't really need suicide doors and I think it is just okay the way it is.
Austin, there was a lot of talk about which one looked better at the LA Auto show i3 event that I attended. Personally I think some of the reason people liked this version was because it is a closer look at the production i3 than the 4 door concept is. The 4 door concept has glass doors and a glass roof and looks very futuristic. The coupe is very close to what the production i3 will look like (4 door or 2 door) so it's much easier to look at it and imagine yourself driving it and I think that plays into this.
Personally I like the utility of the rear suicide doors. Getting in and out of the rear seats of a coupe can be challenging and the small suicide doors open up the whole rear seating area so nicely that I'm sure I'll want to go that way.
